Re: Vic Koenning on Administrative Leave

Some people never worked road construction, oil field, or other real job and it shows. I'll leave it at that. I'll agree that the world we live is way too sensitive in many ways. But I think it is fair to hold one of the highest paid members of a University to a different standard than a roughneck ...

This will be interesting to watch. On one hand, they have a fan base who probably very much agree with Gundy's endorsement of the president and oan. I've never seen oan (I don't get a streaming service or cable), so I can't comment on that much. On the other, they have players who view support of t...

Re: Assuming football is played in its entirety...

2.5 to 3

A lot of change with the defensive staff and personnel will probably lead to a step back on defense. Two very intriguing quarterbacks and a more experienced offense will lead to more points. I see a good 2016 potential type season.

Re: OT: Could 2020 just end now!!!!!!

Serious question, are all stay at home orders now defunct in states allowing mass protests? How can they they charge churches for example but ignore the protests? Yes, they are allowing mass gatherings and peaceful protests. I'd argue they are allowing violent protests but that is another debate. T...

Re: OT: 2020 Cheyenne Frontier Days cancelled

I see a lot of people being hard on the governor for these decisions associated with the rodeos. Likely, he is helping the committees. If attendance is down due to government policies and revenues down because government lock downs have devastated our economy (i.e. no sponsorship), then the rodeos ...

Re: MWC Impact With 23 Cal State U. Campuses Not Reopening in the Fall?

And with that...just about every college campus will be closed to in-person instruction in the fall. I've said all along that this is going to be a domino effect as soon as the first school(s) announce. I'm disheartened by our society that we need to live in so much fear when it wasn't that long ago...

I just switched to Youtubetv and unless I am mistaken have the channels the Pokes will be playing on.
I cancelled my Hulu Live until we even know that the Pokes will be on TV this fall. The ESPNs, FS1 and FS2 and CBS Sports are all barely watchable right now for me.

Re: Vegas O/U season win total: 6?

I can see where they're coming from. A really up and down offense (with all our top pass catchers gone) and new DC, there are a lot of questions going in to the season. This isn't ideal, no doubt...but it's not quite as bad as the plethora of first-year head coaches in the MW. Imagine for Hawaii fo...
